Forrest Willett has had real-life experience with traumatic brain injury recovery. And not just one, but two brain injuries…
The first occurred when Forrest was two years old. After falling down a flight of stairs and landing head first on the concrete basement floor, he ended up in the hospital with a subdural haematoma. The doctors had to drill a hole in his skull to release the pressure from his brain.
The second occurred in 2002 when Forrest was involved in a horrific car accident. He was a passenger and the driver lost control while talking on a cell phone. Following this near death experience, he was diagnosed with a catastrophic brain injury.
Life can throw you curve balls, how you cope with those curve balls will make or break you.
Following the second brain injury, Forrest was left with almost no hope of returning to his normal life. Feeling depressed and completely lost, it took him years to pick himself up and get back on track.
If you, or your family, take just one thing from this book that helps YOU in your recovery and saves you from many months of frustration and depression, you will have made a giant steap towards securing your own happiness.
Follow in Forrest’s footsteps and find ways to truly enjoy your life again, no matter what is thrown at you. Join him on his journey from hopelessness to happiness and discover how three simple words changed his life forever.
How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
After a lot of encouragement from family, friend’s and my mentor, Jack Canfield, I decided to publish the book on Amazon, both in paperback and ebook versions. The book is self-published with the help of a few friends!
How do you see writing a Memoir as different from writing other genres of books?
A memoir is very personal and revealing, you’re laying your soul open through the pages of your book, it’s both scary and therapeutic at the same time.
Forrest Willett has recovered from two traumatic brain injuries: The first one occurred at the age of two and required brain surgery; the second was in 2002 when he was a passenger in a car that lost control while the driver was talking on a cell phone.
Returning home from the hospital he had to relearn basic life skills, such as reading, writing, speaking fluently and walking without assistance.
It has been a long journey, but he shows that keeping focused on the goal; you can truly amaze yourself and your doctors.
He has not only re-learned to read, write and speak fluently, he has become a bestselling author and international speaker.
Forrest has also not only overcome depression, he inspires thousands to do the same in his keynote talks and workshops.
